The objective of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) is to formulate a common vision and understanding of the global information society. It is expected to adopt a Declaration of Principles and an Action Plan to facilitate the effective growth of the Information Society and to help bridge the digital divide. Women's Groups and Gender and ICT advocates have been very active in the WSIS process to date - partciularly at the regional and global levels - but in what ways is the WSIS relevant to women in the UK - and how they can become involved in the process?
